There are some exciting events going on at CASual Fridays where I understand they're launching a sister challenge, but this week's challenge is to make a card to celebrate the special women in our lives. My thoughts immediately went to someone very special indeed - my daughter. She is a lovely, caring, thoughtful young woman who never blindly follows the crowd; I have the utmost respect for her and I feel very privileged to know her. Here's the little note card I've made for her:
Did I tell you she's extremely bright and very beautiful too?! She doesn't like fussy cards, so this is essentially a one layer card with a popped-up flower centre and some rhinestones to embellish. I used my new Summer Silhouettes stamp set - perfect for feminine cards all the year round!
The sentiment was made with a combination of sentiment stamps using a stamp-a-majig for position. One of stamps was a Christmas sentiment - I like to think that a festive set is not just for Christmas! The sentiment is given prominence with a couple of scored lines.
Here's what you'll need to make this card
Stamps: Summer Silhouettes, Beautiful Season, Petite Pairs
Ink: Certainly Celery, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple
Card stock: Whisper White
Other: Basic Rhinestones, Simply Scored, paper snips, stamp-a-majig

One of the things I love most about my daughter is her sense of humour. She often takes me by surprise with unexpected behaviour too - for example once, when receiving a gift, she abandoned the conventional hug and thank you in favour of waving her arm behind her. "Look, Mummy," she said, twinkling at me. "My tail is wagging!"
It's Three Minute Thursday here tomorrow when I'll have a very fast card to show you. See you then,
